Cost and Fees

students in high school classroom

Everett Community College has been great about creating a flexible payment plan for us, which has made it way easier for those of us that weren't quite where we thought we would be when our child got to these college years. I so appreciate you making these formative years a little less stressful. - Scott Conyers, parent of CHS student Chase Conyers

Program Costs and Fees

Each College in the High School course is five (5) college credits and costs $220. The cost for an equivalent course taken at EvCC can be as much as $535 and that does not include the cost of textbooks, parking, and other fees. This is a significant savings to the student! There is an additional $31.80 fee to take the placement test. All fees are due at the time of registration.

Courses at the high school may be 5 credits for the full year's coursework or may be 5 credits for each semester at the high school. The high school teacher can explain the course term.

Full year classes require the student to complete the full year in order to earn credit. If the student does not complete the full year they will not earn any credit - partial credit is not awarded.
